Ben Franklin’s Feed the Founders Networking Event

At Feed the Founders, we believe that the entrepreneurial journey can sometimes be a lonely road, filled with challenges and uncertainties. That’s why we’ve created a monthly gathering for entrepreneurs and startup company founders in the Lancaster area. This event provides a unique opportunity for founders to connect, share their experiences, and enjoy light appetizers in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.

Who is Feed the Founders For?

Feed the Founders is designed for entrepreneurs who are building businesses based on novel innovations. Whether you’re developing a cutting-edge software platform, a proprietary algorithm, or a groundbreaking chemical compound, this event is tailored for you. We specifically target those who are in the thick of building something new, as we understand the trials and tribulations that can come with such endeavors.

We welcome all backgrounds, genders, races, ethnicities, and identities, understanding that the entrepreneurial journey is diverse and multifaceted. Our focus is on fostering a community of like-minded founders who are eager to connect, learn from each other, and make a real impact in our local business community.
